How it all began...In 2004, on a drizzly Seattle day, approximately 50 people, including the foundation's co-founders and directors, gathered to walk around Green Lake Park to build awareness of sarcoma and to establish a sense of community. In the years since, the gathering has taken on the name Dragonslayer Bike, Hike, or Trike, and more recently the Dragonslayer Walk for Sarcoma; has grown to draw over 900 people; and has expanded to include a walk in Portland, Oregon, and a virtual walk so anyone wanting to participate can do so, no matter where they may be.
These annual events have increased awareness of sarcoma, funded the foundation's mission of providing hope, education, and support to sarcoma patients and their families, and provided an opportunity for the sarcoma community to gather in honor of all of the lives touched by sarcoma and to be inspired by the possibilities.
"This walk keeps our hopes up and keeps us positive." -- Barbara
